    Man I like it, my first full suspension was also a 2001 but mine was the Expert, it was red and blue. I wish I still had it.

    Parker II

    I recently bought Parker II frame on JensonUSA.
    Built it up with Marz 44 RLO and Shimano groupset.
    This frame is SUPERB!!! I fell in love on the first ride
    I know that 08 frames have issues on chainstays, but this one is 09, so I hope it's all right...

    I got an 08 - fingers crossed.
    What's the weight on that? I like your specs.
    What's your derrailuer?

    The frame weighed about 3.5kg in S size, and 15kg for the build.
    I'm not a weight weenie, so I'm quite satisfied with this frame

    The groupset is LX and SLX mixed.
    FD is SLX top clamp top pull, and RD is LX 9s.

    Have fun with your Jamis!

    Enter the Dragon

    Here is my new ride. 2011 Dragon Pro frame. Built with Magura Durin SL fork, Magura Marta SL brakes and Shimano SLX/LX drivetrain. Pretty pumped how it turned out. Now, just need to wait until spring.. cripes.

    Sweet looking dragon. I am not crazy about the blue rims and would route the front brake line to the inside, but beyond that it looks sick!

    I haven't ridden the dragon on the trail yet. Still too much snow on the ground. Just dinking around the Durin fork seems great. It's VERY light, nice and stiff too. It has a compression dampener on it much like terra logic. Stays relatively stiff and locked until you hit something big. It's a nice alternative to fox and rock shox. Looking forward to giving it a full rundown soon.

    I'm new to the forum and just bought my first bike a couple days ago. It's nothing compared to the Jamis rides you guys got but for an entry level starter bike I think I made the right decision. I got a 2011 X2 for 300$ (I'm in snowy Canada) at the LBS. Prices go back up Tuesday to 450$.

    Bought this one a couple years ago while on vacation in Florida. I've been buying a bike each year while we're down there and either selling it before we leave or bringing it back and selling up at home.

    Anyway, bought this as is, added my saddle, bag and accessories and had to tweak the setup a bit... other than that, it was good to go. Fork was slightly wonky but I wasn't riding on trails so it wasn't too much of an issue.

    Good job!

    This is my riding partner's 2011 Jamis Exile 2. Mods are: CrankBrothers Cobalt 2 Wheels, Kenda Karmas/tubeless, upgraded cassette, Candy 2 pedals, and a 203mm/Avid Elixir R front brake....a 1x9 set up and fork upgrade planned by the end of the season...it comes in at 28.8 pounds...not bad considering its a large and how heavy that RS Tora is.

    My first FS bike; 2011 Jamis Dakar XC that I picked up this year off inventory clearance.

    Upgrades:
    Marzocchi DJ1 Forks
    Sun S-type Double Track Rims (20mm TA / 10 x 135mm QR hubs)
    Maxxis Mofo 2.35 Tires

    Future Upgrades:
    DH Flat Pedals
    Avid BB7 Brake set
    M666 Drivetrain

    Heavy bike when I compared it to a $6000 2012 carbon bike... but considering I spent less than $1000 even with the upgrades, I can't complain. Makes for a better workout anyway

    Picked up last year's Dakar XC Comp a couple of months ago for $1120 from the LBS and liking it a lot. But sometimes, I feel I should've gotten the XCT 1 2011 for less than $500 more. Then again, it was hard enough to convince the wifey I "needed" the XC Comp, especially I got other expensive hobbies (RC, photography, etc.).

    Anyway, here are some pics of the XC Comp in it's stock state. What part(s) do you guys suggest to replace/upgrade?

    Almost got that same bike, chose to opt out for the sport at $500 less and upgrade myself.

    Had no interest in the hydraulics that came with the comp although the rest of the bike seemed on par.

    Depending on the riding you do, the comp is a pretty complete entry level FS MTB. If you plan on doing any serious trail riding, I'd probably start looking into brakes. Those hydros aren't supposed to be the most reliable.

    Actually, I was thinking of doing that too; that is get the 2011 XC Sport for $700 then replace the fork and some other bits, but it would've cost as much as the Comp. So went with the Comp for the better over all components and just replace the parts much later.

    Nice XC Sport btw. How do you like it?

    It's holding out for me so far with some minor DH and AM riding. It is becoming a work in progress and I see myself eventually swapping all the parts on it. Providing me a nice learning phase though in the process.

    As I advanced into the more technical terrains, I began to realize what I'm lacking in on the bike so I've been slowly selling the stock parts; And they've been paying for the upgrades but I have been paying in time and labour.

    Sitting even right now in terms of money, but I'll probably be passing that once I do a drivetrain overhaul which should put me right around $1k CDN.
